Dry Needling & Trigger Point Therapy

30 min or 60 min*
Dry needling is a treatment that involves using an acupuncture needle.

Thai Style Massage

Services range from 30min to 90min in duration and some services have an optional add-on 15 min foot massage available.
Traditional Thai massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension.
Thai Oil Massage utilises the properties of specific oils to allow the therapist to glide over the body. A mix of stretching, firm pressure, rhythmic massage and rolling techniques are used over the whole body.

Relaxation Massage

30 min, 60 min or 90 min duration.
Relaxation Massage is about stress relief, allowing the body to completely relax and bringing peace of mind and body.
It involves light pressure and flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulation of the muscles giving the client the opportunity to escape the stresses of daily life in a calm relaxed atmosphere.

Reflexology is a simple, safe and effective form of noninvasive holistic henling. Based on the principle that all areas of the body are represented as reflex points on the feet, hands and ears.
